Just weeks since it’s been implemented, the daily Happy Hour at TAP(415) on the fourth floor of the downtown Westfield San Francisco Shopping Centre is already as popular as can be with local businesses’ and mall employees flocking in at the end of their shift to indulge in rotational drinks and savory bites at this modern beer garden.
TAP(415) named after San Francisco’s telephone area code offers the best local beers on tap as “rotational pint” ($5) like Speakeasy Prohibition; red and white California wines rotated every 2 or 3 days ($6); and daily special cocktails ($7), like mint julep – from 3:00 to 6:00 p.m.
The Happy Hour menu includes wonderful starters – $1 BBQ chips and $5 oyster shooters with less than an ounce of vodka and Bloody Mary mix with horseradish. All other bites – miniature yet delicious and satisfying – are priced at $4.15, and include a selection of the most popular city favorites, sure to please.
Bacon Wrapped Little Dogs with beer mustard are fried and crisped to perfection, and served on toothpicks.
Braised Beef Slider with truffle aioli is a little flavorful gem – an upscale mini burger made with tender beef cheeks and beef stock.
Sweet Shrimp Taco with pickled jalapeno and avocado salsa verde is served with a wedge of lime and topped with marinated red onion and cilantro.
Corn Meal Battered Onion Rings make a great pairing with blue cheese sauce.
The TAP(415)'s regular menu remains accessible at any working hour, and includes burgers and sandwiches on house baked bread, house-cured meats, juices pressed daily, ice cream made on site, adult milkshakes (such as the Mojitos Anonymous and 415 Slide), and beer and wine on tap (20 taps).
TAP(415) is open daily from 11:30 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. The Westfield San Francisco Centre is located at 845 Market Street, San Francisco, California. Call for more information (415) 266.7900 or visit: www.tap415.com.
